Indeed, Lord have mercy. The situation is not promising at all in Egypt, and what is pathetic in the same time is the fact that one can only pray that the situation, as bad as it is, does not become worse and worse. I do not understand the policy of the government at all. After giving up the control of the street and media, gladly, to the militants, they have only to fear for themselves. They do not stop at being the side kick of the show, they seek control and full power without compromise. Pretending otherwise is just a step, and those who read the islamic history and "legislations" and are learnt about the approach to power by the late leaders of the islamic brotherhood and Jihad groups can see through such scheme.
Late President Saddat was the first to adopt such a policy and appeased the islamic groups on the expense of security and Copts and gave them full control of universities,unions,media, youth camps and their crimes against Copts ,burning down the churches (1971, 1972, 1975,1977, 1979, 1980, 1981,...) and killing coptic business men and investors, went unpunished.The militants returned the favor by killing him as their first political prey Ironically, it came after Saddat imprisoned Pope Shenouda and the majority of the Holy Synod and the leaders of the Coptic Church and tried to bring appoint a Pope of his own. God used them to devise the plans of Saddat, just stressing again the fundamental universal rule: You reap what you sow, and that the Gates of Hell will not prevail and anybody who tries to tear the Church apart will be torn himself ( for example, Arius), literally, in pieces. The assassination of Saddat was very cruel indeed, without going into details.
